About our client:

A federally registered Non-traditional Defense Contractor (NDC) founded in June 2004 that specializes in avionics for reliable operations in extreme environments.

Their core competency is affordable and responsive satellite design and operations through the innovative implementation of modern Commercial Off the Shelf (COTS) technology in tandem with common standards and protocols. Their products are qualified through a proprietary process that includes all of the following: parts reliability, system level fault tolerance and radiation risk mitigation. Their primary focus is to provide aerospace vehicle systems with advanced solutions while reducing development timeline and ultimately reducing cost.


We are looking for a Hardware FPGA Engineer to develop hardware solutions for space avionics and communication systems.


  • Xilinx/Microsemi FGPA design, simulation, synthesis, and debug.
  • Advanced digital modem development for software-defined radio platforms.
  • Responsibilities include analog, power, and embedded board level design, development, and debug. Some designs will involve high speed signals and modern interfaces (e.g., Rocket I/O, Ethernet, LVDS).
  • Ability to learn and/or perform tasks related to embedded software highly desired and preferably platforms using FPGAs/SoCs (system on chip).
  • Experience programming in VHDL and C+ and RF is helpful but not required.
  • Ideal candidates should have some hardware (mixed signal design, schematic development) is a plus
